Apple unveils next-generation M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, offering increased CPU and GPU performance


Apple M2 Pro and M2 Max Chips

Apple has announced updates to its range of SoCs (System on a Chip) that it started producing in-house with the launch of the M1 in 2020. These latest additions, the M2 Pro and M2 Max, update performance and performance. The previous generation M1 Pro and M1 Max powering the 2021 MacBook Pro.

The M2 Pro, which will be available in the just-announced MacBook Pro and Mac mini, is built using 5-nanometer process technology, with 20 percent more transistors than the M1 Pro, and double the amount in the M2. Is.

Key features of the M2 Pro include up to 200GB/s of unified memory bandwidth, and up to 32GB of low-latency unified memory. It also features 10- or 12-core CPUs with eight high-performance cores and four high-performance cores, giving a 20 percent performance boost over the M1 Pro.

The GPU in the M2 Pro can also be configured with up to 19 cores, three more than the M1 Pro, including a larger L2 cache and a 30 percent increase in graphics performance over the previous generation.

The M2 Max, on the other hand, is exclusive to the latest MacBook Pro models and is built with 67 billion transistors, 10 billion more than the M1 Max and 3 times more than the M2. It comes with 400GB/s unified memory bandwidth, double that of the M2 Pro and 4x that of the M2, and supports up to 96GB of unified memory.

It features the same 12-core CPU as the M2 Pro, but the main gains come to the GPU, with the M2 Max going up to 38 cores and paired with a larger L2 cache. It can deliver graphics speeds up to 30 percent faster than the M1 Max, which Apple claims is the world’s most powerful and efficient chip for a pro laptop.
